View is priceless, food is ok. The Breakfast Buffet was 30.00 each, but the food selection and the fact that you are sitting on a beautiful beach and pool area. If you are staying at Marriott you can't beat the buffet. Anythn you can think of and more. I love the Portuguese Sausage and the omelet station. The service was... More

Although we weren't staying at the Marriott Hotel, my wife and I and our friends visited 4 times in the week we were in Lihue. The breakfast menu offers a $20 all inclusive price (eggs, meat, hash browns, toast, coffee and juice). The dinner menu is interesting and the portions are large. Try the forbidden rice (cold) salad - or... More

Poolside, wonderful menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Kid friendly but also large enough to avoid crowds or noise. Affordable and local as well as resort type dining. Good bar.

Walked to Kukui's from our room at Marriott. Had several breakfasts and dinners. Food was very good and staff was friendly and accomodating. Especially when my wife asked for a ceme brulee oatmeal which is not on menu. Her sister had it once, and hostess said we could have one specially made the next day. Everything was terrific!!!

This was a dinner served poolside in conjunction with a Luau. It was supposed to be a Luau type meal. It was terrible. The meat was dry, dry, dry. Inedible. We left our plates nearly untouched and went to Dukes for edible food. Such a waste of money. Don't go.

We arrived late the night before and thus needed a hearty breakfast after traveling and a nights rest. It was well worth the splurge. Grounds are beautiful Christine our waitress was attentive and full of a wealth of locals knowledge. The muesli cooked with cocoanut milk was great. The fruit was amazing, Pineapple with chili lime sweet and savory. Potato... More

We stayed at the Marriott on whose grounds this restaurant occupies pool-side, and ate there every day for their breakfast buffet, and one evening dropped by for dessert. The breakfast buffet is pricey, $25.99 per person, but the food and service makes it worth it. They have an excellent omelette station and will create whatever omelette you want. They also... More

We were staying at the hotel where Kukui's is and, since it was my boyfriend's birthday, I thought it would be a nice dinner. It happened to be the same night as the "buffet" which they only have on Friday. We saw, later in the week, that this is also the only night that anyone eats here. For good reason.... More
